 I'm not entirely sure what you mean.  However, if you just want to specify 
arguments to autoreconf:  autoreconf is called as


 so set FOO_AUTORECONF_OPT before calling AUTOTARGETS to override the default 
(which is empty).

 However, if you want to run automake instead of autoreconf, that's not really 
supported.  You could hack away using overrides, but probably it's much 
cleaner to do something like:

   $(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin/automake $(FOO_AUTOMAKE_FLAGS)
FOO_DEPENDENCIES += host-automake
